Lot #316. Georges Jayer (Henri Jayer) Echézeaux 1990

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 97+ JG.
"The 1990 Jayer Echézeaux is still quite closed, but it is a wine with so much blazing purity of fruit that no amount of cloud cover can fully obscure its sunlight. The bouquet is deep and vibrantly intense, offering up scents of roasted plums, pure black cherries, venison, dark chocolate, emerging notes of bonfires, intense terroir, coco-cola, and just a whisper of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, with a thick wave of pure fruit on the attack, a rock solid core, and a majestic long and profound finish. I have never tasted a Jayer Echézeaux with this level of intensity, and yet the wine remains pristine, elegant and totally harmonious. Much like a great chef’s best reduction sauce, the ’90 Jayer is the essence of Echézeaux, with seemingly a magnum’s worth of wine crammed into every bottle. The tannins are ripe and totally covered by the onslaught of fruit here, but should prove to carry the wine easily thirty plus years. This is a magical wine." View From the Cellar, February 2002
